How to share an Article on Facebook

with No Comments

If you saw my blog last week ‘What Not to Post on Twitter and Facebook!’ blog, you’ll know one of my points was:Facebook Article

Sharing an article with ‘good article’, ‘agree’ or ‘LOL’ as your intro comment.

Someone replied with TEACH ME!

So here I am!

Do remember, everything I write is about looking at social media from a business point of view. I don’t coach/train on social media for personal use 👍

This is always about building your credibility as the expert in your area.

Sharing an article with ‘great post!’ does not do that.


🤔 Why is the article good?
🤔 What is in it that rates you sharing it to your community?
🤔 Is there one particular section that resonated with you?
🤔 Do you think it’s a load of absolute crap and you want to bust those myths?


It gives people insight to what YOU, as the expert thinks.

It will generate conversation – get to know your followers and they can get to know you.

It will encourage people to click on the link – ultimately, people are busy AND lazy. We have to earn their time invested in reading our posts and the info we send them.

I was chatting to a good friend recently and she admitted she goes with ‘good article’ when she’s being lazy! Is that you too?
